This is how to instantly standout in a crowd in all the right ways. Not many people have a 1939 Plymouthand#44; and youll likely never see one as well built as this one ever again. With the racy red covering every inch (yesand#44; even the bottom!)and#44; a custom interiorand#44; and a performance-built 400 V8 under the hoodand#44; this speedy custom Plymouth is fresh from its build and ready to win awards.<br /> <br><br> The 1939 Plymouth has a unique and recognizable style from the moment it comes into view. The pointed nose with smoothly integrated headlights was new that yearand#44; and it has the kind of forward thinking that people who are new to the hobby will guess you spent a lot of money modernizing the front end. This is a business coupeand#44; which is the best place to start with a street rod. Moonshiners loved these long trunk machines because the extra storage held the most product. This one is not set up to haul liquorand#44; but the same outlaw performance spirit makes the coupe so cool even before the rodder upgrades. This all-steel body looks fantastic in a modern red that has enough clearcoat to give it a mirror-like finish. Because of the investment in the paintand#44; this Plymouth doesnt need as much chrome. Thusand#44; it has a more modern appearance with the matching grilleand#44; one-piece windshieldand#44; and shaved door handles. But it wouldnt be a true American classic without brightworkand#44; but now thats reserved to give special emphasis to places like the Plymouth badge up front and the large 18-inch Billett Specialties chrome wheels.<br /> <br><br> Inside it feels like no expense was spared to give this businessmans coupe plenty of real modern conveniences. A nice tan color matches everything on the door panelsand#44; carpetsand#44; seatsand#44; and even the trunk. The single bench seat up front was upgraded to two modern buckets that are vastly more comfortable than anything out of the 30s. The driver gets a stylized chrome steering wheel with comfortable grips that match the rest of tan inside. Ahead of that is a full set of AutoMeter gauges. This is built to be a cool comfortable cruiserand#44; thats why you get great features like R134a air conditioningand#44; AM/FM/CD stereoand#44; and a custom center console that houses the cup holders and the power window switches.<br /> <br><br> You might want to put on your sunglasses before taking a peek into the engine bay. With an investment in brightwork that includes the aluminum radiatorand#44; air cleanerand#44; intakeand#44; alternatorand#44; compressorand#44; pulleysand#44; and valve coversand#44; we dare you to fine any more of this motor that can be polished. But beneath the show-stopping shine are some serious performance upgrades. This 400 cubic-inch V8 has been given a bored .30 over kitand#44; Edelbrock four-barrel carburetorand#44; and Edelbrock performance intake. The full package has been dynoed at 389 horsepowerand#44; and everyone knows you are making serious power when they hear the rumble of the dual exhaust. But this is far more than just a monster motor. The V8 is backed up by a stout TH350 three-speed automatic with 2500 RPM stalland#44; and that feeds the stout Ford 9-inch rear end running versatile 3.23 gears. On the road this feel great thanks to the new independent front suspension with A-arm upgradesand#44; front disc brakesand#44; and the modern grip of Nitto tires at all four corners. As great as this is on the roadand#44; have you checked out how fantastic all of the components look with the painted frame in the undercarriage shots?<br /> <br><br> Its places like the undercarriage that you truly understand why this build took years to completeand#44; and only has about 150 miles on the finished project. Its a long-time labor of love (with the pictures to prove it) thats ready for you to reap all the rewards. First one to pick this Plymouth up gets all the trophies! Call today!!!
